This delightful little plaster cameo was produced in Europe during the 19th century. This genuine antique cameo is constructed from a plaster composition that has been finished in such a way as to imitate volcanic lava stone. The cameo features a classical ancient Greek gentleman in profile view, most likely the Greek Philosopher Diogenes or Plato; we love the attention to detail to his bead. This is a decorative little item that is the perfect antique for anyone who has a classical or country house style interior or perhaps (with a reverse adhesive hanger applied) to be hung on a special dolls house wall.

Please see our collection of 18th and 19th century art and antiques listed separately in our store.

Reference: For a similar example please see Plaster Cast, Antique Cameo; plaster; 1937-77-22 in the Cooper Hewitt’s online collection.

Measuring: Width 1.25 inch (3.2 cm) by height 1 5/8 inch (4 cm).

Condition: Surface grazes and wonderful patina as seen in our images.
